Impact of coronavirus pandemic

In Q1 and March 2020, operating results were affected by changes in demand as a result of significant flight restrictions imposed amid the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. The international segment was hit hardest due to the shutdown of international air travel. This also affected the domestic segment, effectively wiping out all transit traffic between international destinations and Russian regions. The domestic market was further affected by the gradual introduction of travel restrictions and increasing reluctance to fly among passengers.

The Group is currently optimising its capacities in light of the planned schedule. However, a dramatic decrease in demand led to low passenger load.

Fleet update

In March 2020 there are no changes in the Aeroflot Group fleet. As of 31 March 2020, the Group fleet had 361 aircraft. As of 31 March 2020, the Company fleet had 247 aircraft.
